Job 5:11 he sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I really don’t know where yesterday ended and today began, so I will spare you the details from my travels. Suffice it to say, after 27 hours of traveling I finally made it back to my family in Brasov, Romania. The kids were so excited to see me, but no more than I was to see them. Jeff was still finishing up his shift at the hospital and made a quick run to the store for a few things before getting home. We all enjoyed a nice club sandwich dinner and the kids were quick to catch me up on their happenings this week. I was so pleased to hear that they were helpful and well-behaved, on top of doing their schoolwork. It was a successful week for them here and I am so grateful for their support during my travels back to Arizona to celebrate my grandmother’s life.
After we put the kids to bed, Jeff and I headed out to a fundraising concert for FFR at the Irish Pub just off the square. It was a great time to catch with our fellow volunteers and to enjoy a relaxing night of good music and drinks. Plus I really enjoyed spending time with my wonderful husband. Being away for these few days left such a void in my life and I am so glad to be here with him (and my children) because the void is gone; I feel whole again. We had so much fun having a date night, even indulging in Irish Car Bombs (a shot of Baileys and Irish Whiskey dropped into glass of Guinness).
We enjoyed a nice walk home and talked about the future. We have no idea where we are going, but we both don’t want this year to end. We have felt so alive this year, like we were truly living with a purpose, and we don’t want to go back to the life we previously had. But with all that being said, we just don’t know where to go from here or what kind of jobs to even apply. I am sure God will lead us somewhere, He has had a hand in this journey from the beginning and I know that He is not going to abandon us now.
